    Default Tiger Barb & Green Tiger Barb Behavior

    I have only had these Tiger Barbs & Green Tiger Barbs (a school of 5) for a couple weeks. I have not seen them do this before. I caught this behavior last night and I'm not sure if they are fighting, playing, arguing, or what. They did this for about 1/2 an hour last night and have not done it again. Anyone have some ideas?

    The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.

    I have 5 Tiger and 4 Green.
    My Tigers do this occasionally - it's a dominance thing - I think.
    I see more of this just before an egg laying session by the female(s).
    As long as the school is big enough you should not see a lot of this.

    Thanks. They have only done that the once that I have seen.

    Normal behavior. Tiger barbs are also known for going "tail-up" often and a lot of other weird rituals related to breeding.
